Here rest the remains of
Caesar, an African,
who died February 7th, 1806
aged 104 years.

He was more than half a century,
a worthy member of the Church in
this place; and closed his life in
the confidence of a Christian.
His numerous friends have
erected this stone as a tribute
of respect to his eminent
virtues and piety.

When the last trump shall bid the dead "Arise
When flames shall roll away the earth & skies,
While atheists, kings, and infidels turn pale,
And every hope, but Christ, mankind shall fail,
Caesar will soar from natures funeral pile,
To bask forever in his Savior's smile.
